    Stevie Wonder, John Legend, Sheryl Crow and more have all signed on for Yes We Can: Voices of a Grassroots Movement, a compilation CD/digital download that benefits Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Hidden Beach Recordings curated the collection and will release it this Friday under the following two price points: $24.99 for a digital download, and $30 for a physical CD.

    "We had conversations quite some time ago about how to harness what was happening really organically and naturally with so many artists," Steve McKeever, Hidden Beach's CEO/founder, said in a statement. "The whole concept (was) how do we translate that to inspire and invigorate and also give people a keepsake that they can own while at the same time providing some important capital needed for this campaign."

    More than 150 submissions were made for the CD. Among the previously unreleased cuts on the final tracklisting are Legend's "Pride in the Name of Love" and "Promised Land," a collaboration between Malik Yusef,Kanye West, and Adam Levine of Maroon 5.
